Serena Williams and Venus Williams tee up US Open meeting

Serena Williams and Venus Williams tee up US Open meeting

Williams sent down 13 aces and 30 winners to record her second consecutive straight sets victory at Flushing Meadows as the 36-year-old, who is hunting a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title, wrapped up the win in one hour and seven minutes. Venus won that one as well.

"Normally, I would say cheer for me".

Both sisters were asked after their wins about playing each other, and each of them delivered with some amusing quotes.

"She does, too. It propels us to continue to play that for the tournament".

The last time the two sisters met at a Grand Slam was in the 2017 Australian Open final, where Serena prevailed in straight sets.

"It's early in the tournament, so both of us are going to be looking forward to continuing to play better, " Venus said. Serena, after having a child, and Venus, playing for so many years in such a high level, it's very rare that you can see that in sports.

No. 16-seed Venus punched her ticket to the duel earlier in the day by fending off Camila Giorgi 6-4, 7-5 at Louis Armstrong Stadium.

Next up is a 30th career meeting with Venus, who beat her younger sibling in their most recent encounter at Indian Wells earlier this year.

The precociously-talented Serena Williams then throws a tennis ball in the air, and looks set to launch a serve. "But I just found a way today, and sometimes it's not going to be the best, but you've just got to battle through".

She said: 'I think just the umpire was probably overwhelmed by the situation.

Defending champion and third seed Sloane Stephens also made the third round with a marathon 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 win over Ukraine qualifier Anhelina Kalinina.

Estonia's Kaia Kanepi followed up her first round win over world number one Simona Halep by seeing off Jil Teichmann of Switzerland, 6-4, 6-3. "My designs are inspired by strong, sexy, sophisticated, sassy, sure, smart, stylish, silly, and spontaneous women who are living their best lives, or making it up as they go-kinda like me".

Tournament officials said they regret that a player was given a code violation for changing her shirt on the court during a match, clarifying its rules on when that is allowed.
